"I went up there for the Kentucky football camp," Cobb said. "It was a one-day camp, and I got an offer afterwards. I played pretty well, I guess. I wanted to think about it a little – to make sure it was the right decision. I think it was."
Cobb, who has been primarily used at quarterback and cornerback in high school, said Kentucky has indicated they will primarily use him as a receiver, "I worked out at receiver during camp and I think the coaches really liked what I could do," Cobb said.
Cobb said that he loved the experience from his visit to Kentucky but that friends and family made it easy to make this decision, "My family loved it there and my best friend Kyrus Lanxter recently committed there," Cobb said, "so I really felt like it was the best thing for me."
As to whether he will be getting any practice and playing time at other positions, Cobb said he wasn't sure, "I know they want me at wide receiver. We have talked a little about me playing some quarterback or defensive back, but nothing has been decided. I am not thinking a lot about that right now. I am just happy to have made the commitment and am going to do what the coaches ask. I want to help this team.
The 5-foot-11, 175 pound multi-purpose player threw for over 1,800 yards and 25 touchdowns as a junior quarterback. Impressively, despite throwing the ball a tremendous amount in comparison to other programs in the state of Tennessee, the senior-to-be only threw four interceptions.
"I think Kentucky has a lot of talent at quarterback now," Cobb said, "I feel like I am athletic enough that I can help the team a number of ways. It sounds like they feel they need me at receiver. So, whatever the coaches want, I am there."
